Christmas Extravaganza.......!!

Debra Hale who is in the quilt group at Elaine's, is a most talented artist.  Not just in quilting but all around artistic person.  She has been working on this quilt for 2 years.  It is a Heart to Hand design, which Debra has embellished with all sorts of finery.......that is what Debra does.

Debra has removed the primitive look and made the quilt sparkle and dazzle!


Awesome boots there is the middle!

She excels at embellishment.....

The tree is amazing.....she has made it look like it is lit up.

Attention to detail......every detail!



Debra has used wool, satin, and velvet.

Right down to the label..... it is all quite marvelous!
I spent some time this week end curled up with a book and working on my Dear Jane blocks.  I've come up with a different border, because I knew if and when I ever got the blocks completed the border would halt me in my tracks.  Also, I did not stick to the two color scheme of things, because there are just too many beautiful fabrics to choose from now.....I'm doing my own thing and this will enable me to complete this project along with everything else I do.
"Keep love in your heart.  A life without it is like a sunless garden where flowers are dead.  The consciousness of loving and being loved brings warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring.  Who being loved is poor?"   -Oscar Wilde
